The menu was limited. The food was not great. The service was disorganized and poorly managed. We will not be back.
My wife & I stopped in with my mom who was visiting. All of us had a great meal and sat facing the boats docked outside. Quality of the food & service was outstanding, but just a bit too noisy. I think they should invest in sound dampening panels, etc, since the noise just echoed off the hard surfaces. Still, a great find.
There were 9 of us & we went for my parents' anniversary. It was quite chilly in the dining area. We sat at a round table in the corner by the water (had a great view of the yachts & boats that were moored there). Service was so/so. Had to get up to get the server to bring our check. Drink refills were sparse. I have been to this restaurant several times before & previously had great service so this was a disappointment for a Thursday night. My Mom's entrée was quite salty & she opted not to finish or make a complaint to the server.
Sushi is always my favorite which I opted for instead of an entrée off the menu.
Food was awesome. Server was attentive and knowledgeable. Would definitely come back again!
We heard that Nippers was under new management so we thought we would try it again. We were not disappointed. The food was great - service outstanding. A bit noisy (we sat inside) but the table was ready when we arrived.
Fresh and fabulous seafood. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
The food is pretty good, but the service is severely lacking. This was our third time dining here and it will be our last. It took 15 min, and flagging down our waiter only to have him say "what?". Took forever to get our food, drinks were never refilled, and took at least 30 min just to get the check. The waitstaff needs some serious training.
We had a very enjoyable evening with friends at Nippers. We were visiting family in Jacksonville and they recommended Nippers. So glad they did! The restaurant was very busy but we got great service and the food was delicious. Will definitely return!
Someday I have to break away from my latest favorite- shrimp tacos (may be better than Bang Bang Shrimp). The blackened salmon sandwich, my husband's favorite, is also great. They truly honor reservations- how great.
We were looking for a "local" seafood restaurant and were able to get a reservation; good service, good seafood and good (nearby) location to JAX Beach
My favorite dishes are off the sushi menu. The Rasta Mon & Rudy's Bad Idea. I no longer order off the regular menu.
Nippers takes reservations and honors them which makes it a safe place to meet family and friends.. Everyone knows they will enjoy the food and the view. Keep up the good work.
We were there on a Saturday evening with a table for 8., arriving at out 6:30 reservation time. The order was placed relatively quickly but it took almost two hours to be served our food. When my shrimp dinner arrived, it was apparent it had been siting under a heat lamp for a while and was barely warm. Everyone at my table who ordered shirmp plates had the same problem but the ones who order something else said theirs was good. I was not impressed. It's a good think I ordered appetizers, That was very good but I didn't enjoy the entre. and we had to wait a long time for our checks. This was because they were at capacity and our waitress was very busy. We didn't blame her for the delays. There was just not enough staff on duty.
Took my parents (in town visiting) & girlfriend to eat around 8:30 on Valentine's Day. I was thinking it would be a nice view, good food & a quiet place to catch up.
Well, there was an old rock band absolutely jamming cover songs the entire time we were there. They were so loud, we couldn't hear each other unless we screamed. It was extremely frustrating to think a place would not have thought this may be an issue when your restaurant is sold out on Valentine's Day. I don't get it. Common sense did not prevail...
The food was good & although the service was weak, it was no big deal. I am still just blown away by the concert we had to deal with. I think they clearly need to make some sort of change & plan a lot better.
A table near the window, a fresh long stem rose, good food and great attentive service. My only question is why my virgin Bloody Mary was in a plastic cup.
The food and service were very good. We liked the mahi and the sirloin steak--which we suggest should be ordered rare to medium.
Another trip by sailboat to Nippers: another great experience. All loved their food. I can't imagine ordering anything else but the shrimp tacos whether it be for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Another felt the same way about the chicken tacos and the rest loved their salmon on ciabattia. I love that they have always taken reservation and do abide by one's requests. Nippers is a rare find in this city of so much waterfront with only a handful of restaurants to take in the view.
The food and the amiable service at Nippers never disappoint. Unfortunately, on this night there was a loud party with DJ and a loud band (or it may have been another DJ, I didn't go outside to check) outside. In addition, the restaurant had mood music playing over the sound system. The three battling forms of music made me wish I'd gone someplace else, but we made the best of it.
Not only is it about the only restaurant on the water but it is also a great place to visit by boat here in Jacksonville. This is a favorite trip with guests. Nippers takes reservations which makes Mother's Day and Father's Day work very well. All are always happy with the food and the setting is great.
Live music every night, great service and fun crowd! I will definitely be back to dine again!
